TINA SATTER I came across this transcript and thought to myself, I think this could be a play. It was so amazing, how it was on the page. There were the coughs, the stammers, the surreal diversions in the chat talks, the revelations – because it was interrogative in nature. It was all there.

LUCAS HNATH I always felt like nothing had been cut, right?

SATTER Nothing was cut.

HNATH With mine, it’s not exactly the transcript. It is several days of material. So there is not only cutting, but there is rearrangement. I break the text up into very small pieces, these little bits, and then I move them and arrange them in the story that I think we’re telling.

COLLINS-HUGHES How many minutes did Reality Winner’s actual interview with FBI agents last?

SATTER We are not completely sure. It’s only a little over an hour as we do. So that’s the weird thing. I mean, the time quote at the end, [one of the agent characters] ends the play by saying he stopped recording at 5:17 p.m.

COLLINS-HUGHES You both use a surreal tone to address sometimes painful and sometimes infuriating realities.

SATTER It’s a very present element of how we think about this in the play: What am I, and then we together as a collective, imagining Reality feeling second by second? There is the real, tangible surreality of, say, you talk about monkeys and then you get asked again about this crime you committed and try to avoid saying you did. The surrealism of moving in his head in this tension felt like something we had to constantly deal with. To me, it felt like that filmic, surreal thing you might feel in your body as trauma hit you in the second. So we were interested in: can this happen on this fairly simple scene?

HNATH The thing that seems so specific about your room is the physical protocol. Looking at it, I strongly suspected that you must have been researching what FBI agents do physically when they secure a space.

SATTER I have to admit we haven’t done any research. I was really like, what does this script give me? Once the casting is over and we meet in one room, the three [actors playing] male agents and Emily as Reality, it was this question: Should we? We all have these FBI idioms on our faces. We know this stuff. But we really wanted to feel what they found as actors.
